Hi, the answer is you should be concerned you might go out one day and find that you will break down and be unable to move the car, as your car is an auto box then the problem is more than likely associated with the torque converter the bad news is this is expensive to replace and a big job to do.

Your best option would be to get a reconditioned box as this would be your cheapest option as you could find that after repairing yours something else goes wrong but at least with a recon one you will get some sort of warranty and also they should part exchange yours so you should get it a bit cheaper.

This isnt the sort of job a novice can do it is hard and complicated job to do.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have a 2007 PT cruiser. My check engine light came on while I was driving on the highway. I pulled over, and realized that I was very low on oil. I had a my dad bring me oil to put into the car, before driving it back to town. Once in town I had an oil change completed. The check engine light was off for 2 days, now it is back on again. The quick lube place stated they did not reset check engine light. Should I have any concerns? The car drives fine and sounds fine...

I have a BMW 2004 745i with 118k miles. Since it's been cold in the morning the car has been rough idling when I start the car(@1000 rpm's).

Engine failure My volvo only has 118,000 miles on it but it has a problem starting especially in cold weather.

I have a 1991 Peugeot 405 gas engine car. When I start the car it revs immediatley to 3000rpm and stays there til it warms up, then goes to 2500, i drive and after a while it goes to 1500. Then if I turn it off and come back to it in ten or so min it revs normally but then will go back to 1500 at idle after a bit. I changed the idle motor thing and it still does this. what could it be? Other than this the car runs perfect
